On Sept.1, 2016, Metis N4 Construction signed a historic Joint Venture Agreement with the Manitoba Metis Fedetation’s (MMF) construction arm and Beijing YIngdong Industial Ltd, a leading Chinese housing developer, to create IndEco and bring new innovative green technology to Canada, meeting the housing needs of Indigenous and norther communities. The joint venture agreement also includes the participation of JNE Consulting who will ensure the new housing products are engineered to Canadian housing standards.

By way of background, the Joint venture will bring light-weight steel housing frames to Canada together with highly durable fire retardant outer wall materials that have high R-rated insolation values to tackle Canada’s cold temperatures.
